Oelrich, Mr./Mrs. Frank (60th – 30 MAR 1970)

Mr. and Mrs. Frank Oelrich of Spencer, who were married March 30, 1910, were honor guests at a 7 p.m. dinner at the Amber Inn, Loyal, on Saturday, March 28, in observance of their 60th wedding anniversary. All of their seven children and their families were in attendance with the exception of two granddaughters. Other guests were Mrs. Anna Krohn, Rev. and Mrs. William Ruhbusch and family. Rev.

A large three-tiered anniversary cake made by Mrs. Lillian Woodkey and Mrs. Norbert Boock, and decorated by Mrs. Dennis Woodkey, centered the banquet table. Mrs. Oelrich wore a corsage and her husband a boutonniere.

After the meal guests retired to the recreation room, where a program planned by Mr. and Mrs. David Boock, of "Anniversary Reflections," was presented with group singing and a reflection of each of the sixty years of married bliss. Mr. William Plat of Lac du Flambeau, presided as master of ceremonies to announce the program numbers which included a vocal duet, "Will You Love Me in December as You do in May?" by Winnie Snelling and Jerry Boock, and a quartet, "Oh Perfect Love," by Norbert and Jerry Boock, Mrs. David Boock and Winnie Snelling. To conclude the program, the grandchildren sang "Here Comes Peter Cottontail."
